Groton Community School has grown…and moved forward!  GCS has deep roots in the community, growing and flourishing with the children and families that we have served for 75 years. We are well underway on our growth endeavor in our Forward Motion Project and Capital Campaign to renovate and expand the school. 

During Phase One of the Forward Motion Project, GCS has enlarged and enhanced classrooms, constructed a dedicated Children’s Library and Technology Center, created a Staff Room for collaboration and quiet moments, and built a welcoming reception area and conference spaces. The newly renovated, state of the art space welcomed GCS children at the start of January 2021.
